Don't forget Medicinal Liquors. West Virginia has several tax stamps, and there are additional forms at the federal level.

Ron Lesher most likely already has a list of these!

Unbelievable how far one can expand this Pharmacy topical. And here I thought it was a relatively anemic topical

MrEd,
Yes, this has turned into an interesting thread with a variety of contributors. It also shows the breadth of material beyond just postage stamps.

If ten pharmacists collected what they liked that each would have a different collection as each defined their own interests. One might keep it very restrictive to include only pharmacy equipment or botanicals or those only showing people.
